As you all know that the air of elections is blowing all over India and we all have been experiencing it over the media day in and day out for the past few days and we Bhavanites are no less. We Bhavanites experienced yet another round of the yearly elections for electing the Student Supreme Council members. Bhavan simulated the elections of the largest democracy in the world, India. Elections at Bhavan Kuwait (Indian Educational School) provided students with a maiden experience of how elections are held and provided them with an opportunity to elect their own leaders and understand the importance of democracy. Through the electronic voting system, yet again, a dynamic student council was elected at Bhavan on April 17, 2019. A large number of students filed their nominations right from the post of ‘head boy’ and ‘head girl’ to the post of the ‘student editor.’ Students from classes 9,10 and 11 were allowed to give their nominations which were scrutinized by an able election commission which consisted of the senior-most teachers of the school. An ardent election campaign was held in the school auditorium to woo the voters. The candidates had to undergo a question and answer session where the voters actively questioned the claims and promises made by the contestants. This helped the voters to analyze the capabilities of every candidate so as to exercise their franchise prudently. Students from grades 7-12 were then engaged in voting on the very next day. The voting took place in a very democratic and orderly manner. It was very well supervised by the watchful eyes of the polling officers who were none other than the teachers entrusted with the task of carrying out the voting in a free and fair manner ensuring utmost transparency. The complete voting session took place without any hassle because of the software developed by the experienced IT department of Bhavan. Alongside the voting, students could witness the results displayed on huge screens in the auditorium. As the election results were aired on the screens, the auditorium reverberated with rounds of thunderous applause and the students happily accepted their new leaders with optimism filled to the brim. Mr. T.Premkumar, the principal of Indian Educational School, then officially announced the results as follows with jollity and enthusiasm.

  Bhavan has always provided its students with opportunities to chisel themselves for the big, wide world outside. Election at Bhavan is indeed one of the many efforts made by the institution to make the students understand the functioning of democracy- the very backbone of the Republic of India. After all, democracy has to be born anew every generation and education happens to be its midwife. Each and every citizen of India should be educated about the ‘transformative power of democracy in a progressive society.’ The reason why Bhavan makes it a point to celebrate the spirit of democracy through school elections. A small but a bold step toward the right direction. Bravo Bhavan!
